Many of you will remember the series of conferences focused on “protein kinases of parasitic protozoa” that took place in 2001 (Paris), 2005 (Glasgow), 2010 (Lausanne) and 2015 (Haifa). Our intention to organize a fifth conference in 2020 was of course thwarted by the pandemic. Now that international travel is possible again, we are planning to convene the “Fifth Conference on protein kinases of parasitic protozoa”, scheduled for 21-23 March 2023 at the Lake Nona Cancer Center, College of Medicine, University of Central Florida, 6400 Sanger Rd, Orlando, Florida 32827, USA.

The field has expanded significantly since our last conference, and we look forward to a truly exciting meeting.

We have secured sufficient funding for the conference to cover registration.  Participants will need to fund their own travel and accommodation.

Registration deadline: January 13, 2023

Registration for the meeting is now open at: Register here.

We have blocked a set of rooms at the Courtyard Marriott and Residence Inn Marriott, Lake Nona Orlando at a reduced rate of $199/night, March 20-23, 2023. The hotels are adjacent to each other and are 0.8 miles from the meeting venue.
